It's Your Lucky Day!

It's a beautiful sunny morning here, or "top o the mornin tooya". I know that's the wrong "to" but it's better phonetically. Why are you worried about my grammar anyway? It's St. Patrick's Day. Go do something green! I have some Irish in me, about 15%. I find most people do, especially on St. Patrick's Day! The Irish are a busy lot! What percentage are you?

I'm more than a little Irish, but probably not enough to brag about it. On the other hand, I lived there for a good while so does that allow me some genetic inflation? Hm...that sounds a lot more painful than I had meant...

Drink beer and be good!

I forgot to wear green one year so I cut out a green four leaf clover that said, "Kiss Me...I'm Irish!" in marker and pinned it to my shirt. After work I went grocery shopping - forgetting I still was wearing the paper clover. Well, as I was paying for my items, the clerk caught me off guard and said, "So, you want a kiss."

um. excuse me?

That's what your shirt says.

Oh, haha, no.

I left and took the clover off. Now I just remember to wear green. Happy St. Paddy's tooya!

I have no single drop of Irish blood in my body. Our family is 100 percent Dutch. But - very strange - I feel very at home in England. Maybe in a former life I was an English gardener :-) But it is very good to do something 'green' on this special day. How about the snow? Is it gone already?

benjamin, I can do the drink beer half!

charlotta-love, If the clerk had been cute, maybe that would have been your lucky day!

wieneke, The snow is gone from the flatlanders, but I still mostly snow at my house. A few bits of dirt are showing through where I'd cleared for the dogs.

I have a lot of Irish but from four generations back. Don't have a clue what St. Patrick's Day is other than an excuse to drink and Husband was named after it! He doesn't know either ... but was adopted by the Irish.

Don't know - I know there's some on my Dad's side, and my maternal grandfather is from an Irish family (Kelly - how Irish is that?. So enough to justify beer-drinking and wearing green. ALthough I also think everyone is entitled to be Irish on this day.

cit, I think the "Irish" comes out in everyone, on St. Pat's!
